The craze for cats may seem like a modern day phenomena, however artists have often looked to their feline friends for inspiration throughout history. The mewing muses were the gods of their own religion in ancient Egypt, and not much has changed since then. Their solitary character and need for attention is something many artistic minds throughout the history could relate to as well, and flavorwire has put together a very amusing selection of world’s greatest artists and their feline friends. Artists like Matisse, Dali, Picasso, and many more are seen posing with their furry muses – each in their own and different way!
